My current area of interest is the role of combined fluid shear stress and cyclic strain on vascular endothelium and how these factors may contribute to atherosclerosis. In the past, I have done research in the areas of microvascular pharmacology and cardiac progenitor cells.

When I’m not in the lab, I enjoy writing, playing violin,¬†and discovering new places.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at

Thank you!
